Okay- I had at first thought about bottle feeding all my babies to prevent CAE. My Nigerian does and buck should be CAE, but I am going to have the whole herd tested to make sure. If the whole herd is CAE free, I may let the kids nurse. This changes ALL my plans as to how I am going to house my goats etc. I was planning on keeping the kids in an unheated but totally sheltered area attached to the house with a heat lamp. Fire hazards would be limited due to the area rather than a barn. Not big enough for three does and their kids though. This will be in late Jan, early to mid Feb. in Wisconsin, and even though there have been wild goats for 1000s of year, there have never been herds of wild Nigerian Dwarf Goats in Wisconsin. If I want to milk my goats and let the kids nurse how do I do that? Do I leave the kids with the does all the time, or allow them limited access. Would I let them be with the does for the first three or five days and then let them have limited access.
